AS A MOTHER I HAVE ALWAYS PRAYED FOR THAT SOMEONE SPECIAL FOR MY CHILDREN THAT WOULD LOVE THEM AND BE THERE FOR THEM THROUGH THE GOOD TIMES AND THE BAD AND SOMEONE THAT WOULD BE A LOVING PARENT TO MY GRANDCHILDREN. FOR THE LAST YEAR I HAVE PRAYED DAILY FOR GOD TO BRING THAT SOMEONE SPEACIAL INTO FORRESTS' LIFE. I HAVE WITNESSED GOD WORKING IN FORREST AND I FELT LIKE IT WAS FOR THAT SPECIAL SOMEONE AND I WAS RIGHT. FORREST MET A LOVELY YOUNG WOMAN SEVERAL MONTHS AGO, AND HE FELL HEAD OVER HEALS FROM THE START. I HAVE SEEN HER AT A FEW CHURCH MEETINGS OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS AND I ALWAYS HAD A SPECIAL FEELING FOR HER AND NOW I KNOW WHY. I KNOW THAT GOD HAS BROUGHT FORREST AND BRITTANY TOGEHTER. BRITTANY IS EXACTLY WHAT I AND OUR WHOLE FAMILY HAVE ALWAYS PRAYED GOD WOULD BLESS FORREST WITH AS HIS WIFE AND BEST FRIEND. FORREST HAS FOUR OLDER SISTERS, AND AN OLDER BROTHER, AND NIECES AND NEPHEWS
WHO ADORE HIM, AND THEY ALL FELL IN LOVE WITH BRITTANY FROM THE GET GO. AND OF COURSE ROB AND I LOVE HER VERY MUCH AND ARE SO BLESSED THAT GOD HAS BROUGHT BRITTANY INTO OUR SONS LIFE. IT IS SO COMFORTING TO KNOW THAT ALL OF OUR CHILDREN ARE LOVED AND CARED FOR BY VERY SPECIAL PEOPLE THAT WE LOVE SO MUCH. WELCOME TO OUR FAMILY BRITTANY. THANK YOU GOD

Our little Audrey has arrived. She was not so little though. She weighed 9lbs and was 20 and 3/4 inches long. She was born Thursday August 21st. She is so beautiful. Nolan doesnt quiet know what to think of her yet, but he is adjusting fine. Layne is being such a big help. She loves to hold her. Layne starts her swim team class today. She is quiet the little swimmer. I am heading to Georgia tomorrow to stay with Dana for the rest of the week. Chris will be off the rest of this week to help Kelly. I am very thankful that both babies are here and well and their moms are doing well also. When I get home I plan to post pictures.

Kelly will be admitting in the hospital at 6:00 a.m. tomorrow to be induced. We are all surprised she has held on this long. I think she must hear her big brother, Nolan, who will be two in October, and she may be a little scared to enter into this world. Her sister, Layne who is 7 now will be very proctective of her I am sure. She will be a good big sister and a lot of help to Kelly. Rob and Forrest have to get up at 4:00 to be at Kellys to take care of Layne and Nolan while Chris and I are with Kelly. They are really looking forward to that. This will be number 10 for Rob and I. God has truly blessed us with so many wonderful people to love. To me a loving, close family is the richest blessing we can recive in this world.

We were expecting Kelly to have her baby first, but Joshua had other plans. I received a call from Dana after her doctors' visit Wednesday telling me her blood pressure was elevated and her doctor wanted to do her c-section Thursday instead of the 20th. I came home and threw a few things in the car and was off to Georgia. Joshua was born Thursday at 1:45 p.m.. He weighed 6lbs 14 ozs and was 20 and 3/4 inches long. He is adorable and healthy. Dana is doing great and they are home now. I came home Friday and am now waiting on a call at any time from Kelly. She was 3 centimeters dialated on her doctors visit Friday. I bought a camera and will hopefully figure out how to post pictures soon.

I have two daughters, Kelly and Dana, who are ready to deliver at any time now. Kelly is in North Tampa and Dana is in middle Georgia. I am hoping to be able to help them both somehow. So far I have been able to be at all of my daughters and daughter-in-law deliveries. Since the girls are due at the same time I don't see how this will be possible. This makes me feel very sad. I know the Good Lord will be there with them both. Kelly is having a girl, Audrey, which will give her two girls and one boy, and Dana is having a boy, Joshua, which will give her a girl and a boy. This will give Rob and I a total of ten wonderful grandchildren. We will now have six granddaughters and four grandsons. Thank you God for all of them.
